Chianti Classico DOCG

Chianti Classico NV_new_130x505The Apex of a Quality Winemaking Tradition

Chianti Classico is the result of the Cecchi family’s continuous research in the appreciation of Sangiovese originating from top growing areas in the appellation. After fermenting in steel tanks, the wine is aged for about a year in wooden casks. The scent expression is focused on the depth of the fruit for voluminous and ample palate; however, it is always supported by well-extracted acidic and tannic freshness.
